Tottenham fullback Trippier unconcerned by England loss

Kieran Trippier isn't concerned with England's losing streak.

The Tottenham fullback played in Saturday's loss to Spain, their third consecutive defeat in 30 years.

But the 27-year-old believes England are moving in a positive direction under Gareth Southgate.

"It is not a concern. We are building and that is all we can do, play against these teams," he said. "We want to test ourselves against the best and certainly we put up a fight [against Spain].

"We knew it was going to be a difficult game, these are the teams we want to play against. We started bright and got the early goal and then to concede straight away after was disappointing.

"They passed it around very well in the first half, we talked about that coming out into the second.

"I thought we played much better in the second half. We got it down and we played and we were unlucky not to come out with a draw."
